PLEASANT SPRINGS, Wis. (AP) -- Dane County authorities say a man who visited a home in response to a Craigslist ad for auto parts came back a few days later to burglarize the home.
The suspect is a 67-year-old Sun Prairie man (Manuel Alvarez). He's been arrested on tentative charges including suspicion of burglary.
Deputies were called the home late Wednesday morning for a report of a burglary in progress. A woman in the home was startled by a man entering her bedroom. She called 911, and she says the man turned and fled.
She was able to give investigators a physical description of the man and his vehicle. The suspect was arrested a short time later.
Detectives say the suspect had been at the home a few days earlier in response to an online sales ad.
